Our growing tradition of celebrating Saint Patrick's Day flourished this year, with bountiful music, food and love. The most sumptious hot lunch with traditional Irish stew, soda bread, salads, Irish cheese and coffee and "Shamrock Shakes". We celebrated with traditional Irish harp ensemble pieces, singing and bell choir pieces, along with readings about the life of Saint Patrick.
Saint Patrick's Breastplate Prayer:
“ Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me. Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.”
